Tribe Beauty Box “Baby Doll” April 2020 Review
The theme this month for Tribe Beauty is “Baby Doll” and comes with six items to create those vibes. Here is the info sheet for the box.
Suva Beauty Rose Period Palette – Retail Value $40 (on sale for $20)
This eyeshadow palette was directly inspired by the rose period from Pablo Picasso, and I find these pink eyeshadows absolutely dreamy- especially the shades Harlequin and Passionate! The shimmers on this palette packed a punch, especially when applied with a finger, and the mattes performed well for me too. While a few shades looked chalky at first swatch, it was a different story once I added my eyeshadow brushes to the picture. I honestly never considered myself a pink eyeshadow person, but this palette absolutely changed my mind- you can see me wearing them at the end of the review.
From top to bottom: Apothecary, Harlequin, Purple Ross, Passionate, Eden, Lace
From top to bottom: Sisley, Sweetbrier, Chiffon, Floral, Hues, Pastel
Beauty Creations Annette69 High-Lighter – Retail Value $15.99 (on sale for $10.99)
If we’re being honest I found the packaging on this highlighter to feel a bit cheap, but the actual performance was lovely. The highlighter was buttery smooth and blended beautifully, and it left no large chunks of glitter on my face. I was able to use it both for a soft diffusion of light on my face as well as to really add some shine, and you’d have to apply it with a heavy hand to overdo it so this is beginner-friendly, too.
Grace & Stella Konjac Sponges – Retail Value $15
Konjac sponges are great for gentle exfoliation- they are made from konjac root, and when wet they expand to become softer. I like using them with my cleansers to add a boost of softness to my skin without being overly abrasive.
Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Lip Plump, 0.27 fl oz – Retail Value $29.99
This product was interesting- it doesn’t have the wetness of your typical lip gloss, but it’s also not sticky. It adds just the softest sheen of gloss, almost like a lip balm. I have had multiple bad experiences with lip plumping products, but this one didn’t burn my lips nor did it cause me to break out along my lip line. I’m not sure if my lips were truly plumper after using, but the combo of this with the lip liner was lovely and I plan on wearing it again.
Mirabella Lip Liner in Smart – Retail Value $18
I enjoy receiving lip liners, so while I thought it was odd to receive two in one box, I wasn’t mad about it. This berry-hued pencil wasn’t as creamy as I prefer from a lip liner, but they still applied smoothly to my lips with minimal effort.
Mirabella Lip Liner in Tease – Retail Value $18
This is the same lip liner as above, only in a true pink shade. I found the color to be much more subdued when I applied it and blended it with the gloss compared to a straight swatch on my arm- it’s a very wearable shade.
Here are the lipliners swatched below the highlighter.
Here I am wearing everything in the box. I applied the highlighter to the tip of my nose, my Cupid’s bow, and the high points of my cheeks, and I lined my lips with the shade Tease before applying the lip plumping gloss.
Verdict: This was my first time trying Tribe Beauty Box, and I am a fan. I enjoyed the pink hues of the products included, and I was able to put together a cohesive makeup look that looked lovely without being too bold. Altogether, this box has a value of $136.98 which more than covers the guaranteed $100 value for this $39.98 ($34.99 + $4.99 shipping) box. Even if you take into account the current sale prices, this box still meets the $100 promised value.
